Welcome to my poetry page

No one would call me a chatterbox. Yet I have some things to say. In 2017 I applied for and was offered a one-on-one poetry mentorship through AWP's Writer2Writer program. I was paired with wonderful poet Kimberly L Becker, who graciously advised and encouraged. Though I have written secretly for decades, I had never submitted my work for publication.   

The poems listed here have found homes in various journals through recent efforts.  

 
FORTHCOMING 2020: FLOAT TRUE
I have recently secured a book contract for my poetry collection, Float True. Shanti Arts LLC, out of Maine, will publish my very first book in late Spring 2020.
